This is one small (yet cozy) restaurant on Solano just off of San Pablo. Don't know how we missed it for all these years. But glad we had a craving for Japanese the other night and all the research pointed to Sugata. Appetizers consisting of...More

Sugata has been my favorite since before I moved into the neighborhood in 2009. The Endo family, owners and cooks, have become more than restauranteurs in my life; Mrs Endo is like my aunt. The food is consistently delicious, with home-cooked flavors from my mom's...More

Set in a lovely and traditional Japanese environment, the soup and sushi were delicious. The meticulous preparation for each item was impressive. The server was prompt and alert.

This place used to be the one I go to when craving for sushi and other Japanese food but the quality went down so much I don't want to go there anymore. It is always busy because it is such a small place. Last time...More

After the lovely warmed Saki and the delicious Japanese meal, we left the restaurant with a smile. The Japanese food was beautifully prepared, and the delightful Japanese decor was perfect. A quiet atmosphere for a busy restaurant. The Saki helped us wait for the slow...More

Chikara, the sushi 'chef' at Sugata, always has something special to recommend; he is especially great with his recommendations, once, he gets to know your tastes for fish. The food at Sugata has a very, very authentic flavor; it very much, reminds me of food,...More

Having placed our order and waited 40 minutes we asked after our food. After waiting twenty more minutes we complained and we left. With so few tables it's hard to understand how a table for two could be overlooked for so long.

We've gone to Sugata for about 20 years now. As others have mentioned, the sushi is excellent, but our family's favorites are the tempura udon and teriyaki beef/chicken donburi. I haven't read the other reviews, but Sugata is small (about 10 tables in 200 square...More
